See. That's what happens when you don't use all the settings on your repricer. I always set mine to go .01 under the lowest price to get the quick sell.

Hmmm, you'd think for that price, it'd include shipping.
The $3.99 is really nickel and dimeing ya. Razz

Not exactly sure if this counts, but for anyone who hasn't seen the news in the past hour, Osama bin Laden is Dead.

i run this dynamite lipo:
http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=dynamite+2200mah+2c+lipo&hl=en&prmd=ivns&resnum=6&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=904188819283638514&sa=X&ei=5M7ETdGSAYr1gAeapYDLBA&ved=0CGAQ8gIwAA#
charge time: 70 mins @ 1c
run time: ~35 mins
top speed: 52 mph Very Happy
but i'm having serious mesh issues in the rear diff. i already replaced the gears and the new ones started wearing down almost instantly...

http://i24.servimg.com/u/f24/16/44/64/39/img_2811.jpg
this is the old gear, don't have a pic of the "new" one, i have to take the truck apart

http://i24.servimg.com/u/f24/16/44/64/39/img_2812.jpg
this is my current battery situation, a nice $130 charger for my battlebot Very Happy

http://i24.servimg.com/u/f24/16/44/64/39/img_2813.jpg
and ofc my slash, e-revo wheels with a modified frame and the lowest stock ratio gearing possible ftw. driving through puddles cools the electronics off (yes they're waterproof)

that's about as extensive i have gotten in terms of RC vehicles...i need something that can break things without breaking itself Rolling Eyes ( i highly recommend not allowing friends to drive your vehicles, especially while arguing about what they think full throttle is and what i think based on what i hear...50 mph crash into a car tire only broke a servo gear and front differential pieces though, so i wasn't too pissed at him.)

Dang, I wish my T4 were that tough. A crash like that I probably would have broken all of the steering. It seems tome like Traxxas makes the toughest vehicles, they make them to be bashed not necessarily to race. (I wish I had an E-Revo)

Traxxas stuff is engineered to satisfy out of the box(and it does) but I have not had one hpi blitz come in for repair to replace a broken hub carrier or bent hinge pins or spun axles like the traxxas stuff does, on the other side of it the traxxas drivers are usually first time drivers that insist they know how to handle a 750watt brushless that traxxas so kindly includes as factory equipment. Cool

True. Each vehicle is engineered for different sets of constraints. I have never had any problems with the technical bits of my T4 like the diffs or drive-train, only the plastic bits not being strong enough. That's becasue the T4 is designed to race it doesn't need to survive bashing; while the traxxas products are designed to be cheap bashers.
